's no unified government, it's fragmented at the bureaucracy level, and there's this capacity issue, serious capacity issue within government. what's the advice? >> well, i don't suspect that a lot of the entrepreneurs in this room who are the talent pool for the next economy in detroit are thinking how do i get a job with the city. so -- >> no career advice. >> no, but i mean, seriously. the young talent pool, the 20-somethings and 30-somethings are not thinking about the public sector as a career path. so let's just be blunt and honest. the city is not going to be able to harness the talent that's there that will get the city to the next place. so invert the question. not how are we going to hire those people, but how are we going to bring them into the process sitting where they are in universities, in the private sector, in the ngos that are dynamic and interested in the city of the future, and the city has to invent the way to do that. collaborate, create communities of interest, harness that talent pool, um, and give them the resources where it's necessary if the resources are there. n
about the federal government's role in disasters. i agree with you. if mitt romney is elected, it would be a disaster. this man wants to have 50 states doing 50 different things. how can we have a country like that? >> bill: you can't. by the way, you would have some idiot governors right like there were idiot governors who refused to take stimulus money. >> like the one down in louisiana. >> bill: that's the guy i was talking about. bobby jindal. there are governors that refuse to take high-speed rail money right. >> caller: that's unbelievable because in europe, you don't have to fly everywhere. it would advance the country. i don't understand the retch can thinking. >> bill: i think sandy really proves that this republican thinking is not good for our country. it doesn't fit the needs of americans and it just shows how shallow and wrong mitt romney's whole philosophy is. just think about hurricane sandy. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." stages of a plan they hatched back probably at reagan's
, the government already announced that some 500 will have been withdrawn by the end of this year. next year to take further decisions which the government has not yet taken, and you have to ask the defense secretary, you know, when he thinks that's possible. >> we are talking a time line of slightly more than two years, so i think things can change. i recognize that. >> yeah. i think the prime minister said what they're looking for is a glide past the end of 2014. the government will take those decisions when it's ready. >> what events will clearly dictate political decisions, not asking you to comment on political decisions, but dictate what happens -- >> i can give you confidence the figures announced by the prime minister out by december, that will be delivered. we'll be done. >> thank you very much. my last question, chairman, is is there any -- anybody heard anything about possibility of nato or the united states in particular? withdrawing significant troops earlier than the end of 2014? >> i think the united states also will want to take some provisions next year, and in light of the
of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machinery of the white house and the disaster response and being statesman like. that campaign isn't over. that campaign is going on and on, both sides, romney and obama, they're putting out press releases, talking points, hitting each other ads are on the air so it hasn't stopped. >> the surrogates are still in motion. >> except for chris christie. >> that's true. >> he's switched sides now a surrogate for the president. sorry. >> and to bring it back to the reality of the situation, chris christie has an extraordinary amount of work on his hands. you know, the next few weeks or months of his life will be busy with nonpolitical activities. after the break workers are stranded, hundreds of businesses are closed, thousands of flights are canceled and the new york stock exchange is shut down. depending on what model you look at, san
this is done. >> together surveying the damage. >> a big storm requires some big government. >> the federal government -- >> it seems like common sense. >> -- will not quit until this is done. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey? >> there is no role for a challenger. >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> what does a challenger do in a major disaster? >> governor romney, he's back on the trail. >> we come together at times like this. >> back on the trail in florida. >> we love all of our fellow citizens. >> the question that's dogged him -- >> romney's position on fema. >> -- was about fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> fema. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> sending disaster management back to the states. >> that's the right direction pb. >> even the private sector. >> that's even better. >> we should privatize everything including fema. >> that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction. that's the right direction pb. >> what's your view of the proper
of all the almost of billions of dollars the federal government has spent trying to save those beaches and restore them again and again every few years. this is going to wreak havoc on all that construction of really beautiful beach we've had over the recent years. >> reporter: absolutely. and actually this boardwalk what i'm told is that this boardwalk used stimulus money to restore it. so if this does go under, obviously that's going to be a big challenge to restore it. but a lot of money has been invested into beach restoration and i did ask the governor how much money in terms of oon economic impact that he anticipated in terms of a shutdown because obviously the state government is shut down. nobody is going to work at the state government, and a big mass of businesses here have closed as well. so you can imagine people not working. that's going to be a huge economic loss, but he said the most important thing is that there are no lives lost at this point. he says he'll deal with the economic losses later as long as they can save lives at this point, chris. >> great reporting. grea
is to rediscover progressive values and put them forward. i'm arguing for not bigger government but i think different government. >> woodruff: and scott schaefer of public television's kqed profiles a photographer who uses google's street view images to create art. >> you have this distinct feeling of decay. the images almost challenge the viewer. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. and the william and flora hewlett foundation, working to solve social and environmental problems at home and around the world. and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... friends of the newshour. and... this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: hurricane sandy began battering its way ashore today, threatening days of destruction. the huge system had 50 million people in its sights and was already being called a superstorm. the w
incredibly involved in trying to help the u.s. government think more intelligently about competitiveness and entrepreneurship in particular. then josh linkner, a local star here who runs detroit venture partners as i'm sure many of you know, if you're from detroit, you certainly know that, a supporter of this event which we're very grateful for, and i think symbolic of the incredible new energy that's developing in detroit. and i should also say that josh created a company calls eprize in 1999 here in detroit. it's been operating all this time. two weeks ago it sold for a nice exit. [applause] so here's the story of a local company that came from here, went all the way and, you know, he's done real well with that. meanwhile, he's invested in a ton of other companies. so i just want to start by asking you, steve, you know, when i told you about this, you immediately dropped it. why did you think techonomy detroit was a good idea? >> well, i think it's a great idea. i think it's great you're willing to shine a spotlight on detroit. it's not just about detroit, the story about entrepreneurs
's a time when we remember what government is for and we also remember what mitt romney said fema should be. and that is privatize. you're watching our special coverage of hurricane sandy here on "politicsnation" on msnbc. >> right now the wind is really, really ripping. it's been getting stronger and stronger. the rain is going sideways and i can feel the sand hitting my back. >>> we're back on "politicsnation" with our continuing coverage of hurricane sandy. hundreds of thousands of people have already lost power. many in new york and new jersey. and joining me now by phone is new jersey congressman robin andrews who is near the impact point in new injuries see. congressman, thanks for speaking with us. >> thank you, reverend, for your concern about our people here. >> what's the latest that you can tell us? >> well, the latest is that sandy is right at us. it's hitting atlantic city soon. my district is 30 miles from that so i can see the sight of t we have police officers, nurses, social workers been out for the last 48 hours. they are doing a fabulous job. we have shelters set up. we h
importantly, he works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carlo. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really builds off of carlo's presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of the complex group of systems. how do you take advantage of the integration of those systems. this is where we are lacking. take a bu
government once again, as we did toda which means essential personnel, thank you all very much. all of you are essential. essential personnel have to report to work, but we're going to be closing state government, as have our neighbors in delaware, and i would anticipate we'd be seeing similar announcements from the district of columbia and the federal government, but that's their call, not ours. so, anything else i'm leaving out, ken? all right. let's open it up to questions. >> governor, we're getting pretty dramatic pictures of ocean city. what kind of reports of damage are you getting? >> anybody want to update on damage reports? ken, any -- i mean you've seen the pier, which is -- when i saw the pictures about an hour ago, it looks like it was atleast halfway dismantled. lord knows where it is right now. we've seen pictures of your news crews who are in there, when they shouldn't be, film the waves. and i understand from some local businesses there, that the waves are starting to crash up over the board walk in some parts of ocean city. and that's what we know right now. the most evid
think that there is going to be a mentality to get the government spending any money at all because -- i would agree to this point if there is not enough money i think we could drive more efficient cars and we could change the power plants but if there isn't a profit of changing to natural gas, companies won't do it. they are not going to lose money to change their power plant over to natural gas. the afton de subsidize. i think it is a sad day because america needs to admit climate change is real and we don't have the money to fix it. i don't have the answer for you but it's ignorant to ignore it. >> host: that's john of the mexico. the presidential candidates were sidelined on the storm from campaigning six days ago before next tuesday's election and here is the headline on the "the washington times" romney balances sympathy and politics to raise donations here's what he had to say about the rally yesterday. i proceed affect people in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store and purchased some things that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it'
there is a considerable confusion in the united states government and using the role of the military with covert intelligence agencies and the s. aid the and confused intelligence agencies with the cia with the military. >> the confusion in this instance is the white house with the president pro all the reasons why we've heard of military force could not be sent, we need permission. how was that? the cia denied reque. if the president has an inclination not to use force bureaucrats can follow that. that is the direction. not from leon panetta but from the president. that is what people need to go after. >> exactly. the president hangs around in this country wit people who hate the military, war and defending america up. he wants to go to jon stewart, las vegas, i get himself flattered with young people while soldiers and ambassadors are killed overseas. he is a despicable man in terms of being commander in chief. lou: thank you. more on the worsening scandal. with the "a team" next. 11 days. polls and polls. what happens if neither candidate may -- -- breaches the number of 270? the top stock.
think. you know, that call attention to the rule, just crucial role of the federal government, fema at this time. lou: what have they done? >> it's what they're going to do. what they're already doing. lou: let me ask you this. and i have heard this. governments are great, but all the responding agencies are either state or local. they are the ones to decide how much santa push off the streets of point pleasant. there the ones deciding how to take care of the people being evacuated. you see where i'm going? >> i see where you're going. lou: you tell me about this big pad -- >> since i did say a thing about obama, let me just say this. you have to be very careful. go into a community cannot take away first responders. it takes a lot of cop, a lot of fire service and ambulances that should be doing meaningful things. >> that is why there bloomberg said don't come. >> new jersey. lou: the heck with all that and decided to get the cubs in state patrol and the motorcade. >> to have governor romney who was asked in june what he thought about fema and basically said, let the states to then
, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. i haven't thought about aspirin for years. aspirin wouldn't really help my headache, i don't think. aspirin is just old school. people have doubts about taking aspirin for pain. but they haven't experienced extra strength bayer advanced aspirin. in fact, in a recent survey, 95% of people who tried it agreed that it relieved their headache fast. what's different? it has micro-particles. enters the bloodstream fast and rushes relief to the site of pain. visit fastreliefchallenge.com today for a special trial offer. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble,
at the state level with the federal government pitching in, helping out as they can. the president arrived in atlantic city. he was greet at the bottom of the stairs by an individual on the republican side that's praised him so e fusively and that's chris christie. they got aboard marine one. administrator fugate was with them. they traveled about an hour. long beach island, ship bottom, seaside heights, seaside heights, in particular, as we have seen from our media helicopters hit particularly hard. the president has landed on the way now to a community center that's sheltered as many as 200 at the worst part of the storm at a place outside of atlantic city. there we expect the president to tour the shelter, helping out those in distress and then make a statement, steve. i think we can expect the president to try to project calm, concern, empathy, authority if you will. what we'll not see the president project is any sort of overt political age toll this. this is all very serious and chris christie by his side as he had all afternoon. >> it's still tore and talk about the tone of the pres
opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s
. it shows the president helping americans at a time in need. it shows the federal government doing something to help people. that's an argument that he's been trying to make with voters general low. and, you know, chris christie may well face a re-election fight next year for governor against newark mayor cory booker. it's probably helpful for governor christie as well. the only person it's not helpful for is maybe governor romney to have one of his chief surrogates out there touring today with the president. >> somebody we should remind people that this was the keynote speaker at the republican national convention who had some choice words for the president at that time. and reid, it's also getting a lot of attention and people are raising eyebrows because michael bloomberg essentially said to the president we're really busy here, new jersey can speak for the region and there's no need for you to come to new york city. what do you think that's about? >> well, i think that's about recovering from the storm. it is real difficult for any white house -- or any city that's been hit boy a storm t
engine of job creation in this country is the private sector, not the government. but i also believe the free market has never been about taking whatever you want, however you can get it. alongside our innovative spirit, america's only prosperous when we meet certain obligations to one another and when we all play by the same set of rules. we have come too far and sacrificed too much to go back to an era of top-down, when iran economics. as long as i'm president, we will keep moving this country forward so that everyone, whether you start a business or punch a clock, and have confidence if you work hard you can get ahead. thanks, and have a great weekend. >> hello, i am ann wagner, from the heartland of st. louis, missouri. i worked at a young age at the small retail carpet business my parents started. i vacuumed, a tag sale items come and work my way to the show room floor. but as that happened, that is where i met a young man working his way through high school, named ray, my husband of 25 years and the father of my three beautiful children. we are truly blessed, but like so many o
to coordinate the government's response to the storm. >> this is a serious and big storm. >> reporter: sandy has turned campaign schedules upside down, especially as senator mark warner said in his home state of virginia. >> the storm will throw a little havoc into the race. i was supposed to be with the president and president clinton on monday. that rally has been canceled. >> reporter: the latest polls shows virginia now a dead heat and an important state for romney if he's to win on november 6th. he canceled three campaign events today in the state and instead spent the day in ohio with running mate paul ryan. >> let's, today when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that's coming. >> ohio is another must-win state. told by a group of ohio newspapers they are tied 49 to 49%. >> i know they're chanting four more years but we're chanting all over this country, nine more days. ( audience chanting: nine more days, nine more days! ) >> reporter: today on cnn senior obama advisor david axelrod was asked how the storm might impact the ra
said the government response has been extensive and efficient. >> i have spoken to all the governors in all these states. they have issued emergency declarations. those have been turned around quickly here in the white house. we have prepositioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there's been close coordination between state, federal and local governme governments. >> if you want to know how close the coordination has been, listen to new jersey governor chris christie. >> i've been in touch with president obama this afternoon. the president called me at about 2:15 this afternoon. it was just the two of us on the phone. we had a good conversation. the president wanted to know if we had everything that we needed to be able to respond to the storm. i told him we did. we wanted to check on the level of cooperation with fema, i said it was excellent. he said if at any point over the next 48 hours, i was not getting from the federal government i should call him directly at the white house and had he was going to be there. and that i should
of the economy except for government employment. government employment again fell pretty significantly, but across services, even manufacturing has been having some pretty good job growth. and retail trade, so it was kind of across the board for this month. overall, what you have seen is the health sector, if you say over the last two years, where have the jobs been growing? they haven't been really in anything touching on the housing market. so real estate, construction, those things haven't done well. but a lot of services, a lot of export related, and a lot of manufacturing have been kind of the sectors leading it. >> so the president is promising in the next four years if elected he will create jobs in the millions. mitt romney is promising if elected he'll create 12 million jobs. but at the same time, romney underscoring government isn't the one that creates jobs. how does either one deliver on the promise of creating millions of jobs? >> well, you know, the first thing to note is when an economy is growing, even at a moderate pace, it's going to generate a lot of jobs. i think if
of of the prosperity to virginia. when they talk about less government and tax cuts, this isit looks like enormous cuts toyou can't have it both ways. they don't want to have any revenues to balance the books and what substantial cuts to government spending, that is what looks like in the commonwealth of virginia. when you make the draconian cuts thousands of lost jobs. they estimate 200,000 jobs just we may agree on the issues but we certainly disagree on how to get there. is turnout. i say that because in 2008 we had 75% turnout in virginia. three out of four voted. it is terrific. we want that type of turnout, democrats, republicans, and independents to engage in democracy. here in loudoun, it was over 75% turnout. over 70 percent -- 77% to thousand eight and barack obama received 54% of the vote. what it means to us as we are doing everything we can to get out the vote. we have five days left. we're working on it for weeks, if not months. we have tremendous resources in as well. loudoun and the rest of the commonwealth. i think we have a superior ground game, a superior and help re-elect the presid
argument, making a stronger case for government. he will point to the way forward to real change. it will say this apparently in his stump speech that will create a stronger future for all american. meanwhile, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, pres
achieve when we limit government instead of limiting the dreams of our fellow americans. and the people of america, they're going to be able to choose the future, because they need -- they know what they need to know to know what the future will look like. they can stay in the path of the last four years, or they can choose real change. now, you know, you know that if the president were to be re-elected, he would still be unable to work with members of congress. he's ignored them. he's attacked them. he's blamed them. and of course the debt ceiling is going to come up again and then there would be a threat of shutdown or default and that of course chills the economy, puts more people out of work. the president was right when he said he can't change washington from the inside. you can take him at his word. that's why we're going to send him outside. all right? when i'm elected i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with their leaders. i'm going to endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle who care more about th
